Komatsu Europe introduce the BR380JG-3
New mobile jaw crusher offers net-zero CO2 emissions through carbon-offsetting scheme
KOMATSU Europe have introduced the new BR380JG-3 mobile jaw crusher which offers net-zero CO2 emissions through a CO2 offsetting scheme, which is applied to each machine sold in Europe.
‘We thought it would be fitting to launch the new BR380JG-3 in conjunction with international Earth Day,’ said Vince Porteous, product manager at Komatsu Europe. ‘The BR380JG-3 is Komatsu’s first diesel-powered machine in Europe with net-zero CO2 emissions.’
Powered by a fuel-efficient, EU Stage V emissions-compliant Komatsu engine with an output of 159kW (213hp) at 2,050 rev/min, the BR380JG-3 has an operating weight ranging from 33,500kg to 35,310kg.
The latest Komtrax telematics and the Komatsu Care maintenance programme for customers offer fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.
Building on the reputation of the BR380JG-1, the net-zero CO2 emissions BR380JG-3 incorporates a new two-axis type deck vibrator, which ensures a smooth continuous flow of material to the highly efficient two-stage grizzly separator bars.
The semi-automatic feeding system incorporates crusher overload detection and automatic feed control for consistent and efficient production.
The machine has a 1,065mm x 550m jaw opening with tapered side plates and is equipped with a user-friendly automatic jaw-setting feature that makes it easy to crush at high volumes to the desired discharge material size.
With a maximum crushing capacity of up to 240 tonnes/h and a 1,050mm wide main conveyor with a top speed of 120m/min, a stockpile of 37 tonnes can be achieved before any machine movement is required.
For additional versatility, the BR380JG-3 also has the option of a side muck conveyor and magnetic separator.
An easy, one-touch start and stop function makes the machine quick and simple to operate, and with the addition of standard radio remote control, allows the operator to multitask for increased efficiency.
The high-resolution monitor panel, available in 27 languages, provides real-time machine condition information, fuel consumption information and ECO guidance.
The BR380JG-3’s enhanced safety features include a foldable ground-level maintenance access step, which allows safe easy access while retaining a transport width of 2,870mm. The machine also features new guard rails and safety harness anchor points, and a retractable engine hood.
